Records and Information Management

Records and Information Management is part of the Governance and Information Compliance Team within the Registrar's Department.  We are responsible for ensuring compliance in records and information management as well as producing University policy and guidance for staff and the general public. 

We provide an information service internally to staff on all matters relating to records management and information governance.  In addition, we can advise members of the general public on how to make a request for information under the Freedom of Information Act 2000, the Environmental Information Regulations 2004, or the Data Protections Act 1998.
